61st Annual CCISD Science & Engineering Fair a Virtual Success
152 Students Advance to Science & Engineering Fair of Houston

Several months of hard work on independent research projects paid off for students who advanced to the District Science & Engineering Fair. The future scientists and engineers quickly adjusted to this year’s virtual fair environment and in the end, there were 224 secondary students and 113 elementary students whose projects placed in the 61st Annual CCISD Science & Engineering Fair Awards Program held virtually on January 28, 2021.

Sponsored by long-time Science & Engineering Fair supporter, SAIC, the 2021 fair was the first in CCISD history where an intermediate school student won a Grand Award. Brookside Intermediate’s Ella Schreiter won the Jesse A. Dorrington 2021 Grand Award for her project on a wearable metronome. Last year, Schreiter placed first in the Junior Division of the Science & Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH) and was the 3M Young Scientist Lab State Merit Winner for Texas.

In the January 28 video awards program, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Eric Williams directly addressed the student competitors in his opening remarks. “Your passion for science and engineering shined even in an all-virtual environment this year,” he said. “I wish we could call you to the stage this evening and hand you your well-deserved ribbons, medals and trophies with your family and teachers in the audience. But while this format may be different this year, our pride and heartfelt congratulations are just as sincere.”

Even the judging occurred remotely for the 2021 event. Clear Creek ISD is grateful for the more than 150 volunteer judges who generously shared their time and expertise. After they received the student projects via email, judges had several days to pre-evaluate the students’ work. Judges then gathered together in a virtual meeting platform for final judging and placements.

The District announced that 152 students in grades 7-12 qualified to advance to the Science & Engineering Fair of Houston. Winners will be announced the week of February 15, 2021.
